    i would have thought that strawberries would be ripe during the summer (at least they are in canada)... i think it might be too cold for them now.

    While on the topic of farm visits, me and a friend went to Kadoorie Farm last week. It was lovely and a nice break from the city BUT it is not child friendly AT ALL. Its on a hill and so you have to climb very steep which is quite tough with a stroller or even for kids on foot.

    We went to Kadoorie farm a couple of months ago and thought it was great. It would be better for older kids for sure. But we didn`t walk much anyway as they have a free shuttle\tour bus that goes up and down the hill.

    Thats right and it would be useful to know the exact timing of the bus, the frequency is about 2 or 3 times a day.
